My favorite Evansville Otter

My younger cousin, Travis, and I grew up together. My mom babysat him several summers when we were younger. When I was a senior in high school, he was a freshman, and I picked him up every morning for school. I have been watching him play baseball for YEARS! (along with football and basketball). When he went to college, I didn't get to see him play nearly as much, esp. since he is a relief pitcher and doesn't play every game.

Now, he is an Evansville Otter. I am very proud of him and love to go watch him play in the evenings at Bosse Field!
Here are some pics of him pitching last night and me with my favorite Otter.

After looking EVERYwhere for a duvet in town, I went online and found one at

Here is the finished bed (I'm not sure why, but the shams on the back grey aren't quite right...
